I would love to see Edwards return to WSBK also. And I'd love to see Mladin join WSBK!
Maybe Mladin will see old man Bayliss and think if he can do it so can I. That would be sweet. He can join suzuki and make them better. Or he join Kawi and get the kinks out of the gen4. ( would nev happen but a man can dream)

So, hearing Bayliss and Ducati are returning to WSBK, do you think Ducati got thier way?

Is Bayliss there to work the kinks out on their new beast?

Or has Bayliss been (secretly) working on this, and Ducati wants to get back to winning?

They're already winning. Checa leads the championship on a satellite Ducati team. :dontknow:

I'm thinking the middle and last one. He's known to be testing the new bike for a while now, but the news he's actually coming back is a shocker to me. And Bayliss wouldn't come back if he didn't know he could win on winning equipment.

True! But Ducati can not take credit for Checa leading! Or are they giving him factory support?:dontknow:
Checa is basically riding a factory bike on privateer squad. Most of the factory guys from Xerox went to Althea with all the equipment.

I didn't know that either. So if they had a not so great season it wouldn't have been that bad. And if they have a winning season (which they are) they really come out looking good.

I always loved how Bayliss rode, balls out all the time. I hope he can get that same old magic back. Go TROY!:thumbsup:

Makes you wonder what Checa would have done on the full factory supported Xerox Ducati in place of Fabrizio or Haga. Still a fan of Haga, but in light of what happened last year I think Checa would have given Biaggi more of a fight for the championship.

im super surprised that Troy is coming back, he seemed really sure about being done when he retired. Hes been on the couch watching his mate Corser do the business, and its been eating him alive :thumbsup:

Everything other than the name of the team IS Xerox Ducati. :thumbsup:
